Making an appointment

Do you need to visit a KVK office? KVK operates by appointment only. Schedule an appointment in our online appointment planner if you wish to register or take over a business, change a legal form or register an officer.

For which business matters do I need to make an appointment?

You only need to visit a KVK office for a few business matters. You can arrange many business matters with us online or by post. A civil-law notary will also be able to take care of various matters on your behalf. You can read below for which business matters you should make an appointment.

Changing the legal structure

If you want to change the legal structure of your business, you must make an appointment at one of our offices to do so. You can only change the legal structure of your business at our office. You must complete two forms first: the dissolution of the current legal structure, and the registration of the new one. If your new legal structure comes with new officials, you must fill in forms to register them as well.

Forms for reporting changes

Changes for which you cannot make an appointment at KVK

You can easily submit most other changes using a form: for instance, a change in address, or business activities. You cannot make an appointment for these purposes.
